A Boring Update...

I love watching TV. Love it. So much, in fact, that when I'm not watching Glee or Oprah or Ellen or The Office or 30 Rock or Modern Family or any of the other shows you can watch on American television, I'm watching British television on Netflix. That's right, Skins.

When I started watching Skins, I didn't know there was a controversy surrounding it. That is, of course, until I started watching it and thought, "Well this is quite racy, I'm surprised there hasn't been an uproar about it." And then I found out there was.

If you are interested in reading my article about my take (a teenager's take) on the Skins Controversy, you can find it here.

That's all for updates! (Told you it was boring).

Have a great week! And if you are AP or IB testing, good luck. I wish you much rest and much brain power.

My Major Prom Date Dilemma...

...is that I have no prom date.

Shoot.

Okay, granted it's only May 5th (Happy Cinco de Mayo!) and prom is approximately 5 weeks away, but I can't help but to unhealthily obsess over the fact that I am going to have no date to prom!

Now, my stress about prom has really stemmed from a few main points. The first being that I have absolutely no options. Why didn't anyone tell me freshman year to starting flirting with all the boys so that come senior year I had at least a few suitors/stalkers hanging/lurking around my driveway to ask me to prom? I mean, if I had known three years ago that I needed to A) have a boyfriend by now to have a guaranteed date, B) be flirtilicious, or C) be a hoe bag, then I would have tried a little harder to getter done.

My second issue is that despite what I said in the last paragraph, I really do have a few options. But they are the kind of catch 22 options that no one likes/wants to have. My first option is the guy who you are nice to and are kind of friends with and you tell him things like when you are pms'ing and all that shit stuff but you thought he was gay so it wasn't weird at all when you did. But then I found out he wasn't gay (or at least isn't out of the closet) and has been poking around in my business behind my back asking people what my plans for prom are...And although I may possibly DIE going to prom alone, I wouldn't go to prom with this guy if he paid me. Not because I just want to be a bitch brat but because I wouldn't have a good time with him and then I'd be in a bad mood and then he'd be in a bad mood then our group would be in a bad mood and then everyone at prom would start punching each other and throwing up. And also because this is the same guy that once told me that I looked 6 months pregnant.

My other option is a guy I'm really good friends with, we joke around and call each other husband and wife (I'm the husband, he's the wife), he's super fun and funny and great and awesome and like cool and like omg guyz. But, and there is always a catch, he is a junior. Sigh. So although he would be the best date to go with, that would mean ME (the girl) having to ask him (the junior boy). Would that just be embarrassingly lame or what? Seriously. I can't win.

I realize I sound like I'm approx. 13 years old but...but I sound like I'm 13 years old. Whatever.

So WHAT am I going to do? If only I could win the lotto...and buy myself a date. That would be perfect.

Carpe Diem, ya'll.

Top 10 Random Things I Love (at the moment)...

I don't know if you've met me, but I LOVE making lists. Not 'love', 'LOVE'.

So here is a list of the Top 10 random things that I love (besides making lists):
  1. When you find a new food that you LOVE (for me, it was nerds rope) and you eat it obsessively and often to the point where you actually end up hating it because you overdosed.
  2. Seeing commercials on tv for Disneyland and realizing I'm going to college ten minutes away from it. Yes. Everyone wants to be me.
  3. Finishing homework at a reasonable hour and realizing you can waste the rest of the day away.
  4. The moment my stomach goes from "hurting" to "not hurting". It's like a literal weight being lifted off my stomach.
  5. When you notice an unintentional smiley/frowny face in blocks of text (see above).
  6. The day you get a new phone and you get to discover all the cool things your old, crappy piece of junk didn't have.
  7. When you wake up in the morning and feel rested for school. So rare.
  8. Going to the dog park because, seriously, it is The Happiest Place on Earth for dogs.
  9. Waking up from a dream that you just know was good.
  10. Remembering said dream and thinking about it all day in school.
